F9 Presents PURE 909 - An exceptional collection of fully mixed and professionally produced drum stems + kits using an original 909 as it’s sound source. All sounds have been meticulously recorded and processed using the world’s finest hardware devices to present to you 14 sets of 909 Beats club-ready for 21st century productions.
Digital Heart - Analogue Soul. The 909 is at its core a series of analogue synths and everything produced by the unit except the cymbals comes from analogue circuitry, oscillators and noise generators. This means that every clap, kick, snare, rim and tom sound emanating from a 909 will be slightly unique. Digital reproduction was in its infancy when the 909 was created so even the hats, Cymbals and ride will have tiny imperfections caused by the 5 bit digital playback circuitry. We have worked tirelessly to make sure this is replicated in the stems. Static one shots will never contain the inherent soul that club culture’s most revered rhythm box is famous for and it is this attention to detail that make this collection stand out
Hybrid Kicks. Whilst nearly every other sound from the 909 stands up in a modern production we’ve always felt the 909 kick lacks the initial transient information so vital in contemporary club productions. During the creation of PURE 909 we have Hand-welded (kick by kick) new transients onto the warm analogue 909 Kick recordings bringing out the very best of the sustain portion . Those in the know always talk about the Moogerfooger 101 filter pedal being the 909 kick’s best friend and nearly all of the new kick stems have then been passed through the driven circuitry of this legendary device - Adding weight and power to the audio. The results are stunning and sometimes surprising!
